The aim of the project is to improve the digital competence development situation in Ukraine, and to harmonise it with the European mainstream by adapting the Digital Competence Frameworks for Citizens and Educators and creating Ukrainian National Digital Coalition.

- Design and implement Ukrainian digital competence frameworks
- Make recommendations for modifying digital competence curriculum according to the Digital Agenda for Europe and modern labour market needs
- Create digital competence trainings for teachers and citizens
- Provide high-quality digital competence trainings for various social strata in the society
Digital competences in the EU and Ukraine
Between 8 and 11 April 2019, the Department of Information Technologies organised a training event for more than 20 participants as part of the project dComFra: Digital competence framework for Ukrainian teachers and other citizens.
The project is funded by the Erasmus+ programme and is implemented by a consortium of 15 partners – nine institutions from Ukraine and six from the following countries: Lithuania, Poland, Austria, Romania and the Czech Republic. The project coordinator is the Lithuanian Vytautas Magnus University and on behalf of ČZU Prague the Department of Information Technologies FEM, as a project partner, is responsible for and guarantees the project implementation.
Professor Michal Lošťák, Ph.D., Vice-Rector for International Relations and First Vice-Rector welcomed the participants with a lecture on the system of education at ČZU Prague, in which he also talked about the position of our university in international rankings. The four-day training was delivered by a variety of speakers and covered a number of topics including the Digital Education Strategy in the Czech Republic and the EU, the Digital Coalition in the Czech Republic (DigiKoalice – Czech National Coalition for Digital Jobs) and involvement of practitioners in teaching. The training also involved visiting specialised workplaces such as the Testing Center and laboratories.
The project aims to contribute significantly to the ongoing reform of the education system in Ukraine.
